Updated on April 24, 2019

Years ago, I was so excited to see Ted Nugent in concert, but a family emergency kept me from attending. Never figured him for NRA nut.

Who is Ted Nugent?

Short and sweet, Theodore Anthony Nugent was a military brat, born in Michigan. He's a guitarist who played psychedelic rock in the 60's and by the 80's was into hard rock. He played with a couple of bands, went on his own and had multiple changes of band members. He was a reality t.v. star and did guest spots as well.

What people may not know or may have forgotten, is that Ted Nugent was a draft dodger. He once said that to avoid the draft, he deliberately defecated and urinated in his pants and that he took drugs so he wouldn't pass the physical at the Military Entrance Processing Center. Years later, he said it was a joke and denied it ever happened that way. Instead, he said he received a student deferment. After 1971, he was classified a 4F, meaning that he could not serve in the military. To be classified a 4F, the registered must have been found not qualified for service in the Armed forces due to physical, mental or moral standard.

Teg Nugent is a proud member of the Republican Party. And avid gun supporter and member of the board of the NRA.

He was well known for a song her wrote "Jail bait". True to form, he has been accused of sex with under-aged girls. When he couldn't marry a 17 year old Hawaiian girl, he talked her parents into signing guardianship over to him.

Ted Nugent had six children with multiple women and gave some away for adoptions. And while he has painted himself as an anti-drug advocate, he did say he took drugs to stay out of the military.

His views and comments are racist, homophobic and in 2018, he has leaned to the Trump Party mantra calling Democrats "evil, dishonest & scam artists."

Mr. Nugent goes to Washington....

Ted Nugent, probably the first in history to have "threatened" the president and then been invited by the opposing party to attend the State of the Union Address.

Let us guess who invited this honored guest, no other than Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas, that state that talks about succession every time it doesn't get it's way. In his defense, Stockman said that we live in a free country where people are allowed to speak their opinion and that is why Ted Nugent is his guest.

I have to agree with the later, my only question; where was this sentiment when Rev. Wright was using the same free speech? They definitely were not taking the same stance. However, I digress.

A shocker to the world, Ted Nugent was "less than impressed". Then he went on to say that his idea for saving lives is not controlling guns, but when someone threatens innocent life and acts absolutely dangerously crazy...."get those people off the streets", he says.

Wait....I digress again....didn't he do that to the President of the United States (Obama) and he's still out and about...maybe he has a point. Maybe the laws need to be strengthened to keep the Ted Nugent's in our country off the streets.
